From lessons to practice and impact: Scaling up pathways in peoples’ biodiversity management
This briefing note (PDF) by Oxfam highlights lessons learned form the three-year global programme ‘Putting lessons into practice: Scaling up People’s Biodiversity Management for Food Security’. The note presents short case studies from Peru, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe, each providing examples of innovation and learning within the programme. They provide a model for scaling up and form the basis of the local to global, evidence-based, policy recommendations on Farmers’ Rights and the sustainable use of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (PGRFA) . The programme is being scaled up further to a total of eight countries as part of the global programme, ‘Sowing Diversity=Harvesting Security’ (SD=HS). Findings on innovation and learning from the three partner countries have been consolidated into a global framework, and further conceptualised into six scaling up pathways, to ensure widespread impact—in such a way that social, environmental, or economic conditions can be enhanced beyond the context of this programme.
